michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st

. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. joining us now in our coverage all of this week, anderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our new poll shows why that case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. new numbers on mitt romney's convention bounds. john, what are the numbers? >> anderson, as the democrats open their convention tonight, let's look at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy, and the woman who stood by his side, vicki kennedy. >> meanwhile, the floor plan is completely different from the republican convention in tampa. sinc
-election, with their convention set to be gaveled to order in just one hour. first lady michele obama caps the opening night with a speech that will talk about the president's connection with and support for the middle class. a theme that the president himself anticipated earlier today at a rally in norfolk, virginia, where he drew a sharp contrast with his republican rival, mitt romney. >> i mean, think about it. a plan that says we're going to make middle-class families pay for another budget-busting, $250,000 tax cut, for people making $3 million a year or more, that's not really persuasive to most people. >> while the president was delivering that line, mitt romney's been up in vermont this afternoon, working on his powers of persuasion, fine tuning his debate preparations and leaving hatchet man paul ryan to do the dirty work on the campaign trail as today in battleground ohio. >> the biggest threat to medicare is obama care and one of the biggest threats to job creation is obama care. so for the sake of medicare, and for the sake of jobs, we are going to repeal and replace obama care. >> what a line.
clinton and michelle obama far more than over the appearances by mitt and ann romney? >> the first lady of the united states not hitting a home run, but probably a grand slam. as far as what her mission was to do -- >> the master, bill clinton, delivered a masterpiece of a speech. truly a wonder. a rousing call to re-elect president obama. >> an electrifying endorsement of president obama from the former president -- >> a performance was amazing in the room, amazing on tv. >> reviews of president obama's speech not quite so positive. plus, some journalists are openly complaining, okay, maybe whining a bit, about the joyless and overly choreographed nature of this campaign. do they have a point? i'm howard kurtz, and this is "reliable sources." >>> it's rare in these days of polarized politics that most pundits agree on anything. when the democratic convention kicked off this week, there was plenty of praise for the soft-spoken and highly personal speech by michelle obama. >> michelle obama owned this convention, the delegates. >> i think that we may have forgotten how good michelle obam

obama best will make the case for a second term. this is michelle obama's night on the stage. we have our campaign 2012 team covering it. first we'll go to norah o'donnell, cohost of cbs this morning. >> scott, you know, if mitt romney was trying to make the case that president obama has failed to lead, first lady michelle obama tonight will argue that president obama is the only one who understands the struggles of middle class america. i spoke with several advisors to the obama campaign today who described this as a very personal speech. the first lady will talk about the values and experiences that drive the president every day in the oval office. she's going to remind viewers of her husband's personal story, growing up with a single mom, being raised by a working grandmother. we told there will be personal anecdotes about their marriage. the first lady will brag about the president in a way that only a spouse can do. she'll tout a number of accomplishments including a bill that made it easier for women to sue employers who discriminate against them in the work, making college more
in with michele obama, a portion of michele obama's speech, what did you think of it? >> it was a great speech, it really was. so many personal anecdotes you could visualize. we were talking last week about how ann romney said a lot of great things about mitt romney but never gave you the visuals. john said it best. who in america are in that convention hall -- or in that convention hall watching the speech didn't get the image of a loving father struck with ms, seeing his two children sat the top of the stairs and fighting and struggling to get up those stairs to hug his children at the end of the day or fighting and struggling to get out of bad to go to work to give them a slice of the american dream. it was an absolutely fantastic speech. and the great line, absolutely loved the line, that being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> very personal, very revealing but it also might have accomplished something in terms of touching on some key areas that might have needed some work, not that the president, you would think, had a problem with the women's vote. >> right
of obama's little sister. i am michelle obama's older brother. any 7-footers out there come give me a call. >> craig and i come from different states. we have had different upbringings. as you can see, we have different perspectives on the world. >> but no matter how different winning seem, we share a set of values are -- how different we may seem, we share is set of values, values that are as important in chicago as they are in honolulu. a willingness to work hard, a commitment to education, and looking out for each other. they are the values of how barack and michele have lived their lives, raise their nieces, and lead this country as president and first lady of the united states. [applause] >> four years ago, at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i did not grow up with much in the wake of wealth. but we were blessed with a mother who taught us that education is the surest path from limited means to limitless opportunity. she inspired me to become a teacher and she inspired barack's deep commitment to giving all our young people the opportunity is our education ga
michelle obama of course, and a great keynote speech from julian castro. we'll give you our unique take on it, and you'll be able to participate by way of social media. give us run down on how that works. >> cenk: i will. as you saw in the republican convention because i'm positive you all were watching, we have a twitter feed that goes up on the screen, and we have a whole range of different publics that we look in on, mainstream media pundits, conservatives liberals comedians and they're oftentimes incredibly funny including, when everyone is talking about invisible obama. at the end of the republican national convention, i'll have a fact on that that you'll love, and of course president obama as well here tweeting. in fact, the biggest tweet of the republican national convention was ironically from president obama. it was about invisible obama. we'll get to that in a bit. we'll go to l.a. to check in on social media. we'll go to convention live to check in. michael shure and david shuster and we'll go to some of the speeches that the vice president mentioned and cal penn will be chec
underway here. the delegates buzzing about first lady michelle obama's speech last night. the energy is gearing up to former president bill clinton's speech tonight. you're right, the big news is the change of venue for president obama's acceptance speech tomorrow night. president obama arrived in the tarheel state a day before. the dnc decided to move the address inside the arena because of a possibility of severe thunderstorms. it was planned to be held outdoors at the bank of america stadium. >> it requires adjustments. 75,000 people were going to be there and 25,000 can be here. and i am sure that they have that figured out and they will do an excellent job with it. >> reporter: last week, bad weather forced republicans to change their convention schedule in florida. rnc cancelled most of the opening day program because of hurricane isaac. meanwhile, first lady michelle obama followed up her primetime speech last night with nighings today. >> find the nearest battleground state and find time there and can you make calls to your home to a battleground state. if can you afford it,
to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
and his wife, michele obama. >> michele was unbelievable. >> and joe biden. >> john kerry. >> john kerry did well, biden did well, clinton was incredible, michele obama was incredible. but you know, it -- >> it's a high bar to clear for the guy. >> and also, though, if you want to compare it to tampa, i mean, obviously so much -- >> they had to hold everyone back. >> so much better than everybody at tampa. we're not going to even -- but as far as substance goes, i agree. >> beautiful. >> he said nothing, but he said nothing so much better than mitt romney said nothing. >> yeah. >> which i was talking -- >> that's it. >> let's be clear, we were talking about how high the bar was for obama. talk about mitt romney, it's a low bar for mitt romney to clear that bar. he was somewhere in between those things. i thought the first two-thirds of the speech, and many people have said this, it did feel like a state of the union speech. little bit of a laundry list and very -- not just as mark said, not only did he say nothing new, he said nothing bold and he said nothing very specific. you know, one

michelle obama makes her pitch for a second term for her husband. >>> good morning. i'm aaron gilchrist. >> i'm eun yang. welcome to "news4 today" for this wednesday, september 5th, 201. live look outside at 5:00 a.m. 77 lucky degrees. felt like a wall of humidity. walk right into it. >> whoosh. >> he felt the air. >> i walked right through it, too. >> cooled him off. >> he must have spritzed himself before hand. >> wow, yes, in the car. >> yeah. we've got a better chance of seeing rain throughout the area today. unfortunately, and then the other thing, too, the other part of story is that higher temperatures, too, around today, tomorrow, and friday. taking you back to 1:00 a.m. this morning. a few showers around front royal. those who made their way off to the north and east, really falling apart if you're around baltimore, we've got more rain that sits back in west virginia. the other side of i-81. that's what's going to slowly be making its way eastward throughout the morning. i think by the time we get to mid morning, 8:00, 9:00 a.m., we will see those showers here locally and again
accomplished for the very -- to the various speakers from michelle obama and the headliners, michelle obama and bill clinton joe biden, barack obama and a lot of the secondary speakers. mission accomplished. they also had to -- at the same time, while they were at it, sort of a secondary goal is make sure the people understood what lies they had heard in tampa and what the truth really was. i think that mission was accomplished as well. so huge success i believe in getting the message out. they were really focused. they were really on message. when it comes to the speakers, you know, the evening the major speakers were all there between 10:00 and 11:00 east coast time. 7:00 to 8:00 on the west coast. but there were -- the secondary speakers, it was funny. each night, there was sort of one person that blew the place up and really lit the place up. and became an instant star. the first night was duvall patrick, governor of massachusetts. the night after him so wednesday night was congressman emmanuel clever from maryland and l
but the nuns on the bus. michelle obama and president clinton were amazing. the governor not to that of the park tonight. >> what about the president's speech tonight? what did you take away from what he said? >> he has more work to do. we have to send him back and keep him going. i believe -- this is great. i had butterflies in my rec -- in my stomach. i was so excited to listen to him in person. >> why do you think this race is so close? >> it is close because president obama has had a lot of policies. they're not sound bites. they are complex and interesting. we're trying our best to lay it out but it is not a talking point. this convention is going to highlight some of those issues like medicare and welfare reform, like the war in iraq and afghanistan. we lay this out and explained to the people. we are progressing in moving forward. that is what obama did tonight. he showed the american people that and hopefully the american people will vote him back in so we can continue his good work. >> there werthey were planning e their final night at invesco stadium. >> it is h
to put so much on-- >> and all the energy they need today interview michelle obama and bill clinton and caroline kennedy. and that's what they want today do. they didn't want to do anything hard. they wanted to ask michelle obama, when barack obama gets off the stage, what do you say to him. >> i agree with you on that one. >> and former president bill clinton spoke to the convention and earned himself front page coverage in the new york times and probably a lot of other papers, with his speech. >> and some people even, i even saw some of the conservative blogs that that photo that you just showed, was of president clinton purposely trying to hide president obama's face. >> and i believe the gentleman next to you has that theory. >> you're right. and the guy is a showman. he knows what he's doing, and he could be in the theater. i mean, he's out there and doing 50 minutes with the president cooling his heels behind the curtain and comes out and hugs him and puts his face-- they do this in the movie, the big star gets the-- >> do you think he really tried to do that. >> absolutely. >
of san antonio. finally, first lady michelle obama. this of course is not michelle obama as per speech of the national convention. she spoke about her husband four years ago at the democratic convention. her remarks run about 40 minutes. [applause] as you might imagine, for barack, running for president is nothing compared to that first game of basketball with my brother, craig. i can't tell you how much it means to have craig and my mom here tonight. like craig, i can feel my dad looking down on us, just as i've felt his presence in every grace-filled moment of my life. and at six-foot-six, i've often felt like craig was looking down on me, too, literally. but the truth is, both when we were kids and today, craig wasn't looking down on me, he was watching over me. and he has been there for me every step of the way since that clear day, february, 19 months ago, when, with little more than our faith in each other and a hunger for change, we joined my husband, barack obama, on the improbable journey that has led us to this moment. but each of us comes here also by way of our own improbab
at the speeches this week, let's remember bill clinton had to follow michelle obama, which was a phenomenal speech, martin. that was as great a speech experience as you could ask for in a convention hall, and people are wondering, how can he follow that? he didn't attempt to top it. he did something different. he did a completely different thing as he so obviously would. so what i think happened was we saw michelle obama hit a home run, and then we saw bill clinton hit a home run, and nobody cares whether this home run went over the centerfield wall or the left field wall or right field. these are home runs, martin. these are just incredible performances, and i think barack obama's going to come in here tonight, and he's going to own this night. he's going to own this convention, own this group. and i really think he is now in control of the campaign the rest of the way when he leaves shar the lo. >> lawrence, the final question to you. how does the quality of speeches at this convention compare with last week in tampa. please stop yourself from laughing, lawrence. >> i actually think for the case
michelle obama starting off tonight. bill clinton joe biden, john kerry and of course, tomorrow night and then president obama the featured speaker the acceptance speech at the bank of america stadium on thursday evening. about half a mile from here. it is all happening here in charlotte. that's why we're here. it is good to have you with us. where you happen to be in this great land of ours. 1-866-55-press is our toll free number. use that to give us a call and chime in on what you think about what you've heard leading up to the convention. still talking about all of the lies we heard from tampa. paul ryan still trying to make excuses. he's lying about how fast he can run a marathon. he will lie about anything. he will lie about his own age probably. still a lot of afterthought about last week in tampa and a lot of excitement about this week here in charlotte. 1-866-55-press. now let's see how it's going to work here. peter ogborn in charlotte with me, sitting on my right. your left i guess. hello. >> n
is this playing in the hall as opposed to on tv. even what blitzer said about michelle obama not just a home run, but a grand slam. i don't know what this is. the ball is gone. it is on the mars rover now. >> i think bill clinton did a couple of important things, he united the hilary and obama base for this election in 2016 -- 2012 lord -- 2016. >> stephanie: right. >> he energized the yes, we can people too. i had a woman on twitter say warren i'm a white democratic woman 45 years old after hearing michelle obama and president clinton, we are driving to charlotte to be a part of the celebration today. >> stephanie: oh, yeah. you just wanted to be a part of it. and it was all facts. it -- nobody lays out a case like bill clinton. >> what was the line of the speech for you? >> stephanie: well there were so many arithmetic. and i think -- that he very clearly said i did not inherit -- i did not inherit this mes and barack obama did. >> i think the line of the speech of was like one former president said, there they go again. >> stephanie: yeah. >> he went off script and whe
of this convention? >> when you're able to start with michelle obama and give bill clinton an opportunity to lay it out and then be able to give a ring side perspective like my dad did, that's what it was all about. michelle, bill clinton and then barack obama, that's, the convention was phenomenal. >> is he comfortable playing bad cop sometimes? i was surprised at the bin laden -- >> he was. the reality is he wants to make, to give the american people the perspective of what the president does every day. to make sure average americans are taken care of and that they have a foundation to build a better future and that's what last night was about. given the decision, the single biggest decision in his administration, going after and taking out bin laden. that's what last night was about. >> were you surprised, i mean, did you guys look at what romney did on that thursday night, the lack of mention of afghanistan and was more add it last night to talk about national security than maybe a week ago? >> i don't know, but i'm confidence the president would talk about veterans any way. i'm confidence m
to this crowd, firing them up right now, much like michele obama did two nights ago, president clinton last night, as character witnesses for barack obama, bringing them inside the white house. bailing out the auto companies and here's account he summed that up. >> ladies and gentlemen, i'm here to tell you, but i think you already know, that i watch it up close. bravery resides in the heart of barack obama and time and time again, i witness him summon it. this man has courage in his soul, compassion in his heart, and a spine of steel. and because of all the actions he took, because of the calls he made, because of the determination of american workers and the unparalleled bravery of our special forces, we can now proudly say what you've heard me say the last six months. osama bin laden is dead and general motors is alive! [ cheers and applause ] >> i cannot help but think as the obama campaign continues to point out, he's made eight trips to iraq alone since he was vice president. a total of, i have it here, 16 trips all-tolled in his career. they want that in everybody's mind when he head
-americans, and young people. first lady michelle obama will be front and center tonight. and as will san antonio mayor castro. who gives the big keynote address, democrats are proud of that your policies. and what they believe in will be demonstrated on stage. last week, republicans tried to hide what they were really about. just look at this. 55 prime time speeches, not a single one, not one, included the words tea party. all those unpopular extreme republicans, gop decided to keep them out of the public eye. guess that tea was little too strong for swing voters around the country. let's remember the most conservative platform in history. you know, that one that didn't represent their nominee. >> this is the platform of the republican part. it is not the platform of mitt romney. >> yeah. he's just the head of the party. but this week is different. forget the caricature of the president and his policies. at his convention, democrats will set the record straight. >> they spend a lot of time talking about me but didn't spend a lot of time talking about you. basically they said first of all, everything i

just arrived air force one and we told by the aides he is pleased with what first lady michelle obama did last night. they are very disappointed in the campaign and in the white house, that they have to move the venue from the outdoor stadium, holding 65,000 to about 20,000 at the time-warner center. a local meteorologist tweeted it could be clear on thursday, the republican national convention suggested maybe it was a lack of enthusiasm they could not fill the stadium. that's what really led the democrats, not the weather concerns, to move the venue. i spoke to the deputy campaign manager, and she said that is nonsense. >> 65,000 people that were scheduled to come tomorrow night probably disagree with that and are pretty disappointed they cannot come to see the president. we are disappointed, too. but the chance of severe weather, the chance of putting the people at risk was too high and we could not risk it. >>reporter: officials tell us they had a waiting list beyond the 65,000 people of up to 19,000 or 20,000 that wanted to get in the stadium. they say they would have filled it an
